It’s almost summertime, which means your pool will need a tuneup before it gets used and helps you stay cool! While keeping up with your pool may seem tedious, it’s important to go about it the right way. Especially when it comes to dealing with pool supplies, making mistakes is a big “no.” Avoid the mistakes below and you are sure to keep your pool in tip-top shape.

Mix Up Order

It takes plenty of precision and care to apply chemicals to your pool, and order is a big part of that. Make sure you follow directions precisely and in the correct order. Otherwise, you may throw the entire chemistry of the water off.

Use Incorrect Doses

The instructions are there for a reason, after all! Read directions carefully and only put in what is suggested. The specific amount will do the trick, even if it seems to be too much or too little for your pool.

Use Expired Products

The chemicals will not have any practical use once they expire, so don’t waste time trying to use anything well past its expiration date. If you noticed the time has passed, it’s time to get some fresh pool supplies.

Buy Mismatched Items

Though a ladder or diving board may look interesting and match your pool’s aesthetic, you have to make sure the items are compatible with its overall structure or parts. Check and see what brands work best with your pool, and move forward from there.

With these tips, you won’t misuse pool supplies, which will make for a better time this summer. Stay cool, and remember to visit Rogers Pool & Patio when you need some pool supplies you can count on to work well. Give us a call at (978)-454-5517 and see what we can do for you today!
